Led Zeppelin bassist teams up with Norwegian experimentalists

Former Led Zeppelin bassist/multi-instrumentalist turned arch-collaborator John Paul Jones will be playing a show with avant-garde Norwegian experimenters Supersilent on November 18.

He's got a knack for picking a good collaboration has Mr Paul Jones, so it'll be interesting to see how he fares in the entirely-improvised live set-up of a Supersilent performance.

Support comes from electronic/visual artist and Brooklynite Aki Onda.

Tickets are available here here, though we've got a pair to give away. To be in with a chance of winning, just e-mail your answer to the following question to comps@thequietus.com, with SUPERSILENT in the subject line, by midday Wednesday November 14. It's open to UK residents only, and to read the Quietus Competition terms & conditions, click here.
